No more seven seas just comfort and snobbery
The shipmaster now is surrounded by shrubberry
Gone is his schooner
He shoulda quit sooner
Gone are the whales and he is wan fat and blubbery

I'm entranced by life's rich melody:
So much better than death's threnody;
But its swift, brief ephemory
Leaves only a memory
Caused by its essential episody.

INCONSEQUENT - INCUBUS

INCONSEQUENT - INCUBUS


Lo, to you my life might seem inconsequent
Lo, to me my life at night is heaven sent
Into my drab life does thrust
Visits by my incubus
Lo, my incubus is rich and pays the rent.

No, Tromboiator, the night was late and I was drinking and I was moved by what I wrote so I posted "Lonely Man Lonely God" as a quickfix.

I intended to edit these words the following morning but I became intrigued by the possible responces a reference to a "God" (God forbid) might receive among the in-house group of AWADers.

I got my answer. The new words are...

WITCH - WIZEN smile

Ah. I went in the non-poetic direction of trying (and failing) to envision a dictionary page (or several) with nothing but "lonely" entries. Copout, I suppose.

Not to mislead, Trombone.

Lonely Man Lonely God is the title of a book that I read a hundred years ago. Written by a Catholic Priest from the Northeast it was subtitled The Pleasure/Pain Principle Governing Humanity

What a trip. They don't make books like that anymore.

In the glass I can watch my face wizen:
Skin that could have been palace or prison.
Though I've never been rich,
With my tall, red-haired witch
Life has never ceased boilin' and fizzin'.

What dark thing do evil men launch
Words are tricks; no things are staunch
Our words became extraordinary
The words we thought reactionary
Are now a liberal's communist raunch
